21 The lions roar for their prey(A)
    and seek their food from God.(B)
22 The sun rises, and they steal away;
    they return and lie down in their dens.(C)
23 Then people go out to their work,(D)
    to their labor until evening.(E)

24 How many are your works,(F) Lord!
    In wisdom you made(G) them all;
    the earth is full of your creatures.(H)
25 There is the sea,(I) vast and spacious,
    teeming with creatures beyond number—
    living things both large and small.(J)
26 There the ships(K) go to and fro,
    and Leviathan,(L) which you formed to frolic(M) there.(N)

27 All creatures look to you
    to give them their food(O) at the proper time.
28 When you give it to them,
    they gather it up;
when you open your hand,
    they are satisfied(P) with good things.
